Creating a report to view nodes running older versions of ONTAP

You can create a report to display the version of ONTAP software that is installed on all cluster nodes so that you can see which nodes you should be upgrading.

Before you begin

About this task

Use the following steps to create a custom view that displays nodes running older versions of ONTAP, and then schedule a report to be generated for that view.

Steps

  1. In the left navigation pane, click Storage > Nodes.
  2. Select Show/Hide to remove any columns that you do not want in the report.
  3. Drag the "OS Version" column near the "Node" column.
  4. Click the top of the "OS Version" column to sort the results by oldest version of ONTAP.
  5. Save the view with a specific name that reflects what the view is showing, for example "Nodes by ONTAP version".
  6. Click the Scheduled Reports button on the inventory page.
  7. Click Add Schedule to add a new row to the Report Schedules page so you can define the schedule characteristics for the new report.
  8. Enter a name for the report schedule and complete the other report fields, then click the checkmark () at the end of the row.
    The report is sent immediately as a test. After that, the report generates and is sent by email to the recipients listed using the specified frequency.

After you finish

Based on the results shown in the report, you might want to upgrade nodes with older ONTAP versions.
